Format: Cards
Netter's Anatomy Flash Cards offer a unique learning resource to supplement the anatomy textbook, atlas and/or dissector materials that any University would use. This set of cards draws upon the timeless medical illustrations of Frank Netter, and includes not only the musculoskeletal system, but also a review of important nerves, vessels, and visceral structures not found in traditional flash card sets. Each 4 x 6 full-color card details human anatomy and is organized regionally in accordance with Netter's widely popular Atlas of Human Anatomy and a list is provide stating which plate in the atlas corresponds to each flash card in this set. Each card includes a comment section that provides relevant information about the structure depicted on the front of the card (orgin, insertion, action, innervation, and anatomical relevance). These cards offer an accurate and ready source of anatomical information in an easy-to-use and portable format that also makes them ideal for self-examination and review no matter where you are (supermarket, bank, or coffee shop without carrying around a 3 pound book). The cards are organized as follows: Head & Neck - 81 cards, Back & Spinal Cord - 24 cards, Thorax - 26 cards, Abdomen - 27 cards, Pelvis & Perineum - 20 cards, Upper Limb - 64 cards, Lower Limb - 71 cards

I just finished my first year in medical school, and I thought these cards were a good starting point for studying. Often it's hard to motivate yourself to learn all the mundane details required in gross anatomy, and these flash cards were great to carry around on the bus and review during my commute.
However, these cards do not have all the information that is in the Netter's atlas or textbooks like Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy. These cards only review some bony landmarks, muscles, nerves, etc., but not all of them! So if you know these flash cards, don't fool yourself into thinking you know everything for your exam!

I start PA school very soon and will need these cards for full gross A&P lab, I am very impressed with these fairly inexpensive cards because Netters artwork is great and the insertion, action, and origin, and notes are on the back. Maybe this will help cut out time actually making cards? I hope so, as I know gross A&P is really tough for most people. The cards look like they are straight from Netter's Atlas, ah if only a real person was nicely color coded like Netter then all would be simpler!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, with slight flaws. Oct. 22 2009
By Ryan J. David - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
When comparing the Netter's flash cards to another product, like the Gray's, the Netter's by far have more detail for each card. The origin, insertion, and innervation of each muscle or structure are listed, as well as comments related to positioning in the body and functional relevance. Each structure is assigned an arrow with a number, so you can look at the card, state what the structure for number 3 is, and then check with the back of the card to see if you're right. So, for students interested in a very thorough review of the musculature and a good pictorial guide to location, these cards are great. They have a very complete list of nerves, muscles, vasculature, bones, and organs divided up into a logical regional review.

The bad parts of the cards are as follows: Occasionally they can be a bit busy, especially when they have several arrows pointing to different parts of a structure with only one corresponding number/answer (e.g. the superior, middle, and inferior lobe of the right lung). It would be nice if they had broken each structure into its own arrow/number. Secondly, while they do list origin, insertion, and innervation of each muscle, no mention is ever made of arterial or venous connections. Adding the vasculature would have made for more complete cards.

In summary, these are probably some of the best cards on the market, but hopefully are tweaked slightly in their next edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best investment I made last semester Jan. 5 2009
By Darcy Pennell - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
Last semester I took a fast track A&P course. It was a year's worth of A&P in one semester. Each half (A&P I and A&P II) was 8 weeks, so you can imagine how quickly it went. I did very well in the class, and these cards helped a lot. The detail of the drawings is exquisite. We had a cadaver lab and I had no problem identifying things on the cadaver even though I primarily studied the Netter cards. We also used models and our table had a terrible time getting a hold of the good models--as in, half the models we never even got a chance to see before the test--and I was able to get through without a problem using the cards.

I highly recommend these cards. I purchased a couple other references--a coloring book and an atlas--and I ended up using only these.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool for gross anatomy June 8 2008
By HelloMedSchool - Published on

Gross anatomy is, well, gross both in the decaying cadavers and in the huge amount of things you need to learn. These flashcards contain virtually the same info as the Netter's Atlas but condense it into a more compact size to carry around with you. In addition to the flashcard style of presentation of the labeling of the plates on the flashcards, there is also usually a small blurb of additional information that ties it all together on the flashcard as well. They are pretty well organized, but they are also physically of high quality. The cards are laminated and can be held together with the provided metal ring, so they are relatively resistant to damage, which makes it convenient to take to the gym, etc. Definitely a handy thing to have for gross.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must March 27 2008
By MedIT - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
A copy of big Moore, the BRS Anatomy book, Netter's Flash Cards, and a photo atlas will see you through any med school anatomy class in good form. An actual atlas is optional. It's a good lifetime reference, but with Gray's Anatomy images on Wikipedia you can find answers to "where is it" questions faster than in a print atlas.

The flash cards are very high yield. They are focused on the key points, but more importantly they are so easy to have with you all the time. They are a great way to turn 5 mins into productive time. Clear categorization and coding in the box makes selecting the relevant cards easy.
